The effects of native and oxidized forms of the new antioxidant drug MTDQ-DS (HUMAN, Hungary) on some parameters of acute inflammatory processes were studied. In short-term in vitro experiments, both forms at 10(-4) to 10(-6) g/l inhibited dose-dependently the zymosan-induced chemotaxis of the rat peritoneal polymorphonuclear (PMN) granulocytes. In short-term in vivo experiments both forms administered intraperitoneally at 450 or 600 mg/kg inhibited the formation of carrageenin oedema in the rat paw. The long-term administration for 3 weeks of native and oxidized MTDQ-DS in doses of 450 mg/kg significantly inhibited the carrageenin-induced oedema formation, the zymosan-induced chemotaxis, and the luminol-dependent light production of rat peritoneal PMN granulocytes. The results suggest that the native and oxidized forms of MTDQ-DS have an antiinflammatory effect since they inhibit several events in the local inflammatory reaction.
